Hey i need to know if the specs on the brute snorkel is the same for the 08's ...

What Do I need to Buy?



A) CVT Intake
Keep stock rubber coupler attached to front of CVT Housing.
2 - 45's



B) CVT Exhaust
1 - 45
3 - 90's
1 - 3" to 2" rubber coupler

For 2008 & up brutes, there is a valve you must work around, click here to see the 2008+ CVT exhaust snorkel & parts list.


C) Air box Intake
1 - 90 rubber 3" coupler w/ clamps
1 - 2" 90* Street Fitting
1 - 2" 45* Street Fitting
3 - of whatever you want to put on the tops of your snorkels (90's or 45's - your call)


D) 1 - 10' stalk of 2" Sch40 PVC.

E) 3 - 2" Rubber Couplers for uprights.




do i need all this for the 08??

Exactly the same. Make sure you use the 3" rubber elbow on the intake!

clamps come on the couplers already. Thats just your preference... they make things a lot easier though.

thanks..appreciate it...i think instead of buyin the couplers i could just run 3 str8 pipe up rights...less money if ya think about it...no money on couplers = what i have to spend on the 90's or whatever i do on top of the pipes

AlphaDogBrute750, those 3 couplers on the stacks serve an important purpose.
If you roll the bike, the snork uprights will come out or bend at the coupler. This will save you having to redo lower broken snorkel pipe if the bike gets rolled.

mine are pretty high and i still had 2-3 feet of PVC pipe left. alot of the height comes from the extra curve(that you should not have) but i still feel like you'll have plenty. if not, i believe lowes and home depot(fer sho') sale 2 foot scrap pieces for a buck or two;

Yeah the rubber couplers serve several purposes, one is so that its easy to get the plastic shroud back on, its very very aggrivating to get the shroud on and off w/ the high snorks.. trust me. I broke one doing it. Thats why I went back w/ the couplers. I had str8 up stacks to begin with.

Doing mine this week. Probably tomorrow. Gonna try the straight pipe up instead of the couplers. But, I can see what you guys are talking about as far as them serving a purpose, especially the rolling over part.

I don't have couplers on mine. I just take the left the 90's unglued. I take them off and the plastic on top of the pod. Then it lifts straight up. I will probably be adding the couplers to mine. I like the look of the couplers.

Smae here, I have 45's on my pipes, and leave them unglued, makes it a lot easier to work on it. Also a question, I made mine a long tim ago, when 2" rubber elbow was the norm, now I keep reading make sure its three, suppose I should fix this, huh? Im guessing better airflow?
